Last night I gave TRON a double wax and removed the disc mech and cleaned meticulously, novus 2'd the balls which are quite new ooh shiny's....plays so fast and sweet. First game tonight I had SOS lit and only gem and disc multi needed to finish to advance to portal....didnt hit the scoop, no SOS for me but had 89mill, could have been epic!

I freaking LOVE this game, simple rules and just fast paced pin action, I believe my heart rate may have exceeded 100bpm, I should wear my heart monitor next time...Declare your love for TRON!

Quoted from Trophybeeyautch:

Didn't I kick you ass last night in tron, centerflank???

The 3 Jack&cokes I had while cleaning it slowed my reflexes I seem to remember the score at 23.3mill against my 22.8mill...I wouldnt call that an ass kicking...my lawyer may have to chime in on this for clarification.

#12 6 years ago

I wonder if there is some sort of resin you could coat the spinning disc with, something like spar urethane to keep the rubber from eating away and stay really "tacky" to grip the ball to add the wicked.

#13 6 years ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Sorry Centerflank

You just damn near earned your first thumbs down from me ever.

edit- but, I gave thumbs up as I do truly enjoy beautiful pin loving lassies...

#18 6 years ago

Pfft.

LOL! Tiger got the Pfft! Boom!

Yes, when the queen gives the pfft that is not usually a good sign. Also, she has the master weapons and she knows it.

Quoted from Geremy13:

You seem to be the most perfect person to write such a book. Please share you knowledge with us.

Thats very flattering but my pinball enthusiasm is WAY above my actual skill level.

1) I never worry about flynn being lit or completed, 99% of the games I play that mode is completed without actually attempting to shoot for it.

2)I do try to start ZUSE after I have Clu and Light Cycle multi ball lit in the Arcade scoop, then hit the scoop to start those 2 modes, then onto phase 3....

3)my basic strategy is shoot for Quorra spinner when right flipper is fed, recognizer/disc multi when left flipper is fed

4) Gem is the tough one to get, Ive gotten better at deflecting off TRON targets into gem and its a much easier shot when the 3recognizer targets are down

Hope that helps a little Geremy, check these threads out if you enjoy TRON.

Quoted from pinheadpuckguy:

I started a Tron owner thread awhile ago Flank......you're stealing my thunder

Oops, sorry buddy, pinside seemed a little slow so I thought Id start a fun thread....by the way I think Im going o need some more custom pin gulps, I love those things!

Quoted from bangerjay:

I think he's busy banging his trophy

Nah,that was last night, we have an every other night schedule, its the off day. Is that TMI?

#28 6 years ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

This is one reason why the pro is better than the LE. The bank shot is not available on the LE. I've had to harness my skill at plunging for GEM . . . also not easy but with practice and decent nudging you can get it about 50% of the time (maybe a little less).

I was just thinking about that, I like the standard targets, I wouldnt mind my THOR targets on HULK to not be drops.

Yeah hitting gem off the plunge, slightly risky especially since we get many drains from the ball coming out the castor spinner lane. I stick to going for the skill shot off the plunge.

I also disabled that pop up post that activates when you plunge. WTF were they thinking on that?

Edit- OT just popped on LOTR as I havent played it in a long time, had that punk gollum hanging off the cliff and Drained. ARGH!!! I did get 2 SUUUPER JACKPOT gimli callouts as I completed 2towers multi!

#33 6 years ago
Quoted from ChadH:

Just hold down left flipper on plunge and it will leave the post down.

Right, but I never want it to activate, EVER! Because I normally drink fairly heavily while playing and I forget to do that.

#35 6 years ago
Quoted from davewtf:

I like it ah-lot but dunno if I can commit to you being super smaht.

Just do it buddy, you'll feel better, probably sleep better too.

#51 6 years ago
Quoted from jarjarisgod:

You're doing it wrong.

One thing Ive learned today is Tiger is always right.

Quoted from RobT:

Tron blows. I picked my Avatar because it looks cool. I bought a TRON LE cuz it looks cool. That's where it ends.

Didnt you buy TRON 2x cuz it looked cool?

edit vvvvv nah, Rob isn't a troll, Id bet my original flynn arcade cabinet mod he voted supersmart

Who else cleaned their TRON today? She is such a dirty pig but looks so Hot when she's cleaned up!

Quoted from pinmister:

You are pimpin the shit out of that Tron-Awesome!

Just ordered a few more toys for it as well, Blue DMD and led speaker covers are next.

Quoted from bangerjay:

White Tron standing by.

That is dope, fresh, or sic! Take your pick. Cant wait to see that badboy in person. Whats your Hi score on it? Curious if there is a big diff in score between the 2 versions.

Quoted from retired_user_101:

i blew a fuse on my TRON LE. it will power on, but i can't start a game. uhhhggg !!!!

where do you get those light-up side rails from & also the side hinges? any URL for them, or just someone to contact here?

They are unobtanium and no longer available But if you trade me straight up my TRON for your TRON I will find you a pair. You dont even have to fix it, mine works great and is freshly cleaned. Deal?

#90 6 years ago

WOW! I dont know how to respond to that, that ought to be your avatar! LOL!

#97 6 years ago
Quoted from hAbO:

Who does the Tron rails? This is f*@king awesome! Is thread or contact info?

ChadNC had those made up.

Whats on that F10 circuit thats making it pop?

Looks great! I want the light up disc speaker covers, LOVE THIS GAME!!!!

Im going to have to buy Eli's mod when available, I simply must.

#111 6 years ago

I see that Centerflank is absent from Pinside so far today, he is either busy with honeydo's or he is severely hung over?!

Nope, I feel great, had to get up early to go stain a deck, mission completed!

Whitepower TRON is CF approved!

DSC09236.JPG

#127 6 years ago

So looks like TRON has brought a lot of love into our lives, at this point 81% of pinsiders love the TRON. Nuff said...

Or not, 19% of you apparently need some male enhancement pills.

#136 6 years ago

Where's all the love gone?

Ive been loving addin a few more minor mods to mine Pinbit pop bumps!

DSC09248.JPG

#142 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

I'm a big fan of the pop bumper kit. Have you considered the pinbits plastic protectors? They are a nice improvement too.

Throw some pics up, Id like to see them installed, I dont run any plastic protectors on any of my machines.

#145 6 years ago

OT-Oh Hell yeah, watching Lone Wolf McQuade, he goes into the little guys office in the wheelchair and ther is a Rapid Fire and a Xenon in this dudes office!

#147 6 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Watch my video above you will see under the plastics is glowing neon orange. That is the protectors doing that, they are neon orange and react to the light of the led's. Worth every penny!

Ah yeah, I watched that the other night, do you have to remind your wife their is an upper flipper?

That recognizer plastic looks nice, I take it the ones for the slingshots are included? I thought those came from Curly at LittleShop...are the pin bits all clear or colored?

#150 6 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

I've had my TRON LE for quite awhile.

Excellent post RobT, TRON is such a ridiculously awesome game to play (fast-simple rules-visually stunning-and yes, I give TRON the best audio rating of any pin Ive ever played)

This is about the only machine I fire up right now, waiting on some parts for HULK, TAF and Xmen.

#184 6 years ago

I got a set coming too and never mind jarjar, he just cant figure out how to get the glass off his LE to put any mods on, so bitter.

#204 6 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Damn you centerflank

You are very welcome.

Too bad you dont live closer and could play my fairly well tuned Avengers, you might start loving that as well.

#207 6 years ago

Not a bad score for my first game of the day, did I tell you guys I love this game?

DSC09271.JPG

#209 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

Hey kind of random, but didn't you change your lockdown bar to the old style? If so, do you remember what parts you bought? I read something about the parts from PBL not working for Tron, just want to make sure before I buy.

The standard lockdown bar and receiver from PBL fit perfect in mine, Stern needs to take those latch style and throw them all in the trash.

DSC08989.JPG

#213 6 years ago

Too bad you dont live closer and could play my fairly well tuned Avengers, you might start loving that as well.

OT-just to follow up on this comment, I put new leaf switches for the slingshot kickers as my originals got badly bent backwards, had a solid game today, wonder if my rankings can allow 2games at a 10???

DSC09278.JPG

#221 6 years ago
Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

blocking the C L U letters at all ??

You can easily tell if they are lit or not, so doesnt really block them.

I installed mine and dont like how the yellow looks with my orange LED's, If anyone wants them $10shipped to lower 48, pm me... #SOLD#

#240 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

and Flynn's sign

I think the Flynn sign looks great, plus you get that replacement plastic that looks better as well.

My chevron plastic set is sold. Thanks!

I take it you saw my DMD glare guard blocker with the Encom sticker on it, I love that mod!

#244 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

Where did you get that sticker from?

Ebay, came in a 2pack, I still have 1 left unused, but they are really cheap.

edit- its way to big to fit on coin door

#245 6 years ago
Quoted from RobT:

And yes, I've seen it in person.

guess you didnt have your bifocals on

#248 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

and I wouldn't want to copy you.

I dont mind, you can even put suck it AC/DC as your custom message, haha!

OT-Took the whole family to see Pacific Rim today, super fun movie on the big screen! They had a MB there but I didnt have any cash on me so I didnt get to play it.

#249 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

but it wouldn't really work anywhere other than the glare guard if it's that big

Wonder how they would look on the legs? Maybe I will try it out and take a pic for you's guys.

#257 6 years ago

What do ya'll think?

Quoted from bangerjay:

Load motherf$cker

Id swear you are loaded up at happy hour right now but I know better. LOL! I heard you got a new toy, can't wait to play it. Did you get a subwoofer for it?

#266 6 years ago
Quoted from centerflank:

but they are really cheap.

I should have said inexpensive, these seem to be pretty quality stickers with great adhesion, they havent come loose in any area on my glare blocker and its a pretty shiny non smooth surface.

#270 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

Hmm, it actually looks better than I thought it would

I kinda like it as well, just ordered another pair so I can decal the other leg and have a spare.

#284 6 years ago

very nice!

Quoted from Av8:

Here's a pic of my LE.

I like how AC/DC has a warm blankey wrapped around to keep it cozy during its hibernation.

#289 6 years ago

OT- sorry, hijacking my own thread.... Logo like this Trilogy.

Thats freaking sweet, something for us amateurs to shoot for!

#306 6 years ago

Also, I think I found out who sodomized the lamp, I wont give names but this guy really likes white russians.

#314 6 years ago
Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

This lamp is Fragile must be french or something.

?

#317 6 years ago

The newest run like I have, decals seem pretty nice compared to my LOTR right next to it, definitely not grainy.

#319 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

You already got your other encom decals? That was fast, mine haven't gotten here yet. They look really good IMO.

Thanks, I messaged the guy when I bought them and showed him some pics of what I was doing with them. I got one more small one coming for the coin door so thats it, Ill have 5 encom emblems on it then, I think I have the record?

#321 6 years ago

1 on coin door , 1 on dmd glare guard, 1 on apron, 2 on the legs. A bit much I know...

DSC09210.JPG

#325 6 years ago

Uh oh, I got a little fight brewing in my pin cave who the best is.

#339 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

I would definitely prefer if each letter was separate.

That would leave too much wiggle room for you to mess them up

edit-well the top layer of clear is just transfer paper, you could remove them from that before you apply.

Quoted from Timerider:

Stern & Disney are gonna sue you for corporate sponsorship infringment laws, with that many Encom logos.

Let them come, I have my super team of Tigerlaw, Gambit, RobT and Harvey Birdman all on retainer. I would end up owning Stern&Disney and all the Marvel movie rights by the conclusion of that trial.

I could finally make that Smurf pin!

#345 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

I should have realized the clear was the transfer layer

I didnt realize it either until TrilogyBeer pointed it out to me, yes the clear layer has good stick to it, I found pulling it extremely horizontally with the surface you are applying to worked well, still got a little lift but nothing major

edit-horizontal/parallel, did that paint a proper picture? My brain is going, tired from work today.

#352 6 years ago

Encom Nation has begun!

#354 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

Hehe, I'm loving this mod, it looks really good
This might be a stupid question, but does anyone know what it would take to hook up an external sub along with the flipper fidelity sub in the cabinet?

Yeah, It reflects awesome off the glass just like in the boardroom pic!

I just piggyback off the lugs of the cabinet sub (I zip tie them to existing speaker wires and the solder the wire at the lug)

Is the fidelity different? I have all stock speakers in everything.

#366 6 years ago

Well, I just ordered the light up tron discs for the speakers and a set for Hulk...I also want to add a shaker to my LOTR finally. Just need to grab some EL paper for those hinges I have and thats it for a while.

Running out of play $, gonna have to skip the plastics unfortunately. Gotta start saving for my next pin too! Ill give you a hint what Im thinking.....

#370 6 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Where do you get the light up speaker panels?

http://www.pinballtoppers.com/

Quoted from Keebler:

I'm leaning toward X-Men, I love that machine! I've never played SM, might have to try that and IM before I decide.

All 3 are great choices, I had IM and loved it but now that Xmen code is near completion Im pretty happy I did that trade.

I would like to add black mirror blades on TRON, I also have those LOTRcabinet decals coming, cant wait to see those installed.

#373 6 years ago

That is OUTSTANDING my friend! HAHA! I have to enlarge that and get one framed for my pin cave LOL!

#378 6 years ago

Well well, guess who just slinked down to the cave to love some TRON!

DSC09321.JPG

#384 6 years ago

Yeah, but I wish it had been PattyJ

Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Just made a trade for a TRON for AC/DC Premium. Should be arriving sometime this month
AC/DC Premium is a great great game, but I did my work of a billion on it, and I was slapping the lock bar too many times with silly left/right drains. It kept making me think back to the silk like flow and smooth shots through the pops and left flipper shots on Tron lol. Two totally different pins is all. He's happy, I'm happy, should be good.
Great thread, good reads and some stupid nice machines in here (all white? crazy good looking)
I guess the one I'm getting is from the 2012 run, clu translight, has the light cycles and the arcade mode 2.? something? I'm assuming decals as well (my first run from before didn't have the decals)

Awesome, so this is your 2nd go around, I cant imagine my collection ever being void of this beauty.

#386 6 years ago
Quoted from shacklersrevenge:

Funny thing is, the first time I played this game was at Pinwiz arcade in NH, and a newish one at a Disney resort, my first impressions left me feeling eh about it.

I hate to say it, but playing any pin on route usually leaves me with a shitty feeling in my stomach. The movie theatre by me has a MB, we saw Pacific Rim a week ago and I didnt have any quarters so we saw Wolverine yesterday and I was so pumped to play it. Left flipper would stick up and completely ruined my enthusiasm.

Would love to get up to LTG's place someday as Im sure his pins are all nice&smooth.

#389 6 years ago

LOL! Is that the guy that used to perform at the skatepark?

edit-Im running down to Chinatown to grab some 3penis wine, anyone need any?

#396 6 years ago

I love TRON just a little more today.

DSC09327.JPG

#402 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

Sent all my armor off for powder coating today, no Tron for a couple weeks

Thats dedication, if I ever do decide to swap hardware, Id just buy all raw metal set to send out to get powdercoated, a little expensive but at least then you have a spare set if you decide to do other machines(if they are compatible that is).

Too bad you dont have a pin dolly, you could probably put a 2x4 and another piece or two to get the pitch right and keep playing.

#407 6 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

look better than centerflank's when you're done.

Not with that translite

#410 6 years ago

Hmm, never thought it was green looking, ill have to check it out later.

Im taking a pinball break today, bought another ps3 as my original had finally burnt out. It came with Gran Turismo 5, been playing the crap out of it!

#417 6 years ago
Quoted from Cursed:

Can i ask is that the Pinbits or the Stern one?

I put that pic up for the speaker light ups from pinball toppers.com, the blue dmd is from Pinballlife. Did I answer your question?

#427 6 years ago
Quoted from Captive_Ball:

Flank, you still looking for a Black SM.....got an idea for ya

But are you playing in style?

Ive never had a cool video game chair/steering wheel set up, someday my friend...

#438 6 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

I've never had a ball stop on the scoop cliffy. You might want to try the newest version, it's been improved since the first few versions I think.

No stops for mine as well, as you can see mine is notched.

My Xmen was notched and eventually broke/bent up at one edge, the new one I recently got from PBL has no notch and performs much better, doesnt redirect the ball at all.

Thanks guys! I'm really looking forward to finishing this thing up, but it will be bittersweet because I've had so much fun modding it

Im just going to sell mine to buy a premium to mod out. Whole new thread!

Sorry, I think you both have TRON premiums....

#484 6 years ago
Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

can somebody school me on these navi balls?? these balls make the game easier/harder/more random??

Much harder, they are lighter than the steel balls and super fast. The arent affected by magnets so great for TRON

Do you want the left or the right ? (breast that is)

Any sexy she hulk image you can put on it is good with me, maybe a better Marvel image but I prefer two breasts usually, a 3rd one on the back would be even better!

Quoted from pinheadpuckguy:

Hey Flank started on the artwork for the custom speaker panel for your Tron. I will use mine as the "guinea pig" first

Sweet, Thanks so much PPG! I got in on the TRON cutout rails on Zdoors next run as well

My last run Tron arrived yesterday

I like your box topper!

Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

I love TRON CAKE more than lamp... this was my son's b-day cake a few years back

You didnt hire him a stripper in a Quorra outfit? Pffft....gotta go the extra mile!

#606 6 years ago
Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

you know..... my big 40th is coming up next month. you got me thinkin about the whole quorra dancey deal! maybe time to hit the local club!

Well thats a huge deal! Im sure the wife would be fine with you having a private Quorra showing at your house for just the 3 of you if you catch my drift?

#609 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

A couple nights ago I finally managed to solidly light all the modes proior to SoS. When I shot the scoop, my score instantly went from something like 80 million to 180 million. Talk about a bonus!

If you can light up double scoring before you start SOS you are in business!

................and a custom painted speaker panel. Finishing the artwork (again) 2nd edition.

Oh I almost forgot buddy! Im going to snide my snookie cookie all up over my TRON

#668 6 years ago

My daughter had a Bday party last weekend and I let them loose on the pin cave, when they went back upstairs 2 of them came back down to specifically play TRON again, I actually dont invite many non pin people over anymore as Ive realized Im uninterested in talking about anything besides pinball/football.

#672 6 years ago

They are black chrome, not opaque and look very nice and still reflective, I guarantee Ill install them the night I get them and upload pics.

On a side note Tigerlaw has had his sitting in a box for almost 6months or something and refuses to install/share pics....

#677 6 years ago
Quoted from Riffbear:

Noo get the standard mirror blades!!
The black ones are not good in tron!! noooooo

I thought the standard mirrors were too reflective by pics people showed, I think Ive only seen 1 pick of Black mirrors on pin side and I liked the subtle reflection it offered.

Might get some blue ones for Xmen if I like this black mirror set.

We had a bunch of nonpinheads over last night(all my wife's friend) and this girl pictured on LOTR was in heaven, I bet she played 35+games on all my machines last night, the guy behind her hadnt seen any pins in a long time and was pretty wowed by everything, Ill try to get him to buy a pin and join the madness!

2nd picture was my first game of the morning, light cycle multiball is always the phase I fail during S.o.S. whats up with that?

#704 6 years ago

You guys need to pitch your game more, I have that slotted cliffy and the ball has never stuck, more pitch=more fun to play in my opinion.

#765 6 years ago

Finally they have arrived!!!

#772 6 years ago

Alright, I took a bunch of pics, I really like the black chrome, its a nice subtle look to them, they are a bit more reflective in person, Ill load them in posts of 3 pics as that always seems to load best for me.

Quoted from BillE:

Just got my black mirrors today to, haven't installed them yet, gotta figure out the left gap, my left ramp rubs the left wall so there is 0 clearance for the mirror, so I'll have to make some adjustments, my black nickel apron should be here soon also.

There is a little wiggle room if you pull the playfield left and right while its vertical against the back box, I also stuck sheets of construction paper in right away to avoid any scuffs/scratches after I got the first blade installed. His youtube video install instructions make it quite easy.

#782 6 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Which ones did you get? There are black side "mirrors" at $195, and then there are black side "blades" for $90.

The black mirrors at 195, I think the black side blades are really opaque.

If anyone wanted to try, get a quart of gloss black from the paint store, would get you a little reflection for the $12 and a little labor. Post some pics if you try it, you can always cover it with a set of blades later on.

Quoted from bangerjay:

Maybe you could make a black panther tron

I have to go back on hold for modding, rumor is a super nice Centaur may be on the market soon...

#791 6 years ago
Quoted from bangerjay:

An older game...for you?

I know, crazy right? It has custom skull painted legs...I should have at least one early SolidSt. in my collection, I dunno.

#796 6 years ago
Quoted from bangerjay:

Well, I know of two centaur's with custom legs and I ain't selling mine so..?

Arent all the custom skull legs supposed to be on the one centaur?

Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

you had me at custom skull painted legs dude, centaur is a great pin!
mos def hit the brakes on the tron encom mods for at least a few weeks.

Yeah, Im not into SS's so much but I like that one, has multi ball and all. My only qualification for owning a pin, must have multi ball. I could be wrong but I think the cabinet was redone on that Centaur as well, Ill find out tonight.

1 week later
#824 5 years ago

I wired my cycles to be on all the time right into the power supply below the right flip button, but I also have a pig so easy to swap around.

Did I mention a spidey fell into my lap? Just had to be patient and stopped looking for one

images.jpeg

#826 5 years ago

No, they power off with everything when you flip the main power switch, I have a 4-1 splitter that plugs directly into the "always powered on" port of the pig, and it also has 4 or 5 other ports that you can plug mods into that daisy chains to wires with alligator clips you can move around easily....

#829 5 years ago
Quoted from ENDOFLINE:

nice dude.... spidey is a amazing pin.

pics or i didn't happen

Saturday it is getting dropped off, Centaur too!

Then a freaking Hardbody showed up on CL in Madison..... Must resist

#831 5 years ago
Quoted from btw75:

how do you have your pig configured? I have mine controlling the flynn sign and the lit recongizer but haven't used it for anything else. My plans are to add the light cycles separately on the other two outputs but haven't spent the time as I keep on buying more pins and now hunting season has started....

I have everything powered on all the time except the underneath the cabinet blue flashers, I tied those to the disc multi ball flashers I believe. I still have to add a light up recognizer at some point amongst other things..

..but Id rather buy more pins instead of putting more $ into TRON, good grief I must have almost8.5K into this now...oops.

#832 5 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

I never got the PIG™, but I had a hot mess of splitter cables. I eliminated them with this and it works well.

Yeah those are nice, I recently ordered 2 of those, put one in Hulk and I thought I put the other in LOTR...

#834 5 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

It looks really nice for the price.

It so does!

Awe man, I so want that, Christmas is coming up soon if people are looking for ideas for me

#839 5 years ago

I really dont feel like paying a late fee on all my other monthly bills... Yobagoya!

#844 5 years ago
Quoted from retired_user_101:

nice. is it the "dark" spidey, or is it "normal" spidey?

Its normal, its routed, got a solid low price on it but I bought it site unseen, just was texted this seller got in in. Will either flame him or praise him on sunday in this thread! LOL! He seems like a good dude so far that I have dealt with him-edit-on other deals and Ive met him in person before.

#848 5 years ago

Here is a good one to use...

Pretty happy with my Spidey, has some minor nicks on the outer cab, play field is nice under the routed grime, right in the middle of shopping it.

Big Thanks to Chris M. http://www.kingpingames.net/

#868 5 years ago

That playfield looks real nice to me. Did you use the treasure cove kit to get it so shiny and polished??

No I dont do the treasure cove kit....I thoroughly cleaned it with Novus1 to get all the abrasive particles off, the I Novus2'd it really well, and currently my 3rd coat of wax is drying, unfortunately have to wait on a order I just placed from PBL to put it all back together as I need bulbs and figured what the heck, get flip rebuilds for it, shaker too.

I also used PBL rubber cleaner on all the blue rubber targets by Dock Oc and Sandman.

Awe man, I still got to clean all this stuff...

#870 5 years ago

Lets cut to the chase Flank! All we want to know is..... Do you love SM more than lamp?

Hard to say at this point, Lamp has really given me some great times, spidey is brand new and hasnt proven itself, but as we can see it has great potential.

Quoted from bangerjay:

I love Tron more than you, centerflank!

I dont think you do Banger, reply back within the next few hours as to why you love it more, otherwise you have to give me your Safecracker, Thanks!

#903 5 years ago

Looks like someone owes me a Safecracker!!!!!

#911 5 years ago

I have an original PIG, very nice gadget, but those 8way splitters are a great compromise if you dont want to pony up the $, I think for TRON though, with all the mods, go PIG or go home.

#914 5 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

But pig only has four slots. I already need six plugs for all my mods. Do they sell 8 slot pig 2's??

I have a 4splitter to the "always powered on port"

#921 5 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Is the pig hard to program?? I'm not that bright. I'm an accountant and all I know is numbers.

No, its easy stuff, no programming, just jumpers with alligator clips for all the pass through ports (PIG1)

#932 5 years ago
Quoted from Erik:

So slightly OT .. what would happen if you put a blue filter over a red DMD? Purple? Blueish red?

Your machine will kick you in the nuts and explode.

its like dont google google...

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Where is the best place to buy the rails?? I need three sets. Is there a place that gives a deal for the more you buy??

PBL buddy!

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

Hey, you're that guy that says buddy, you scam artist . And thanks!

Look buddy, you buy these slide rails and you guaranteed sexy bonus time.

#952 5 years ago

oh great... yet another item i need to go buy for tron, but is it cheaper if i opt out of the sexy bonus time?

No way buddy, YOU want sexy bonus time!

My Spidey shop job is coming along nicely, target decals should be here 2moro and then the ramps go back on. I Love Ramp!

#954 5 years ago

I still can't believe what great shape that spidy was in for a routed pin.

Indeed, the outer cab has its multiple nicks but whatever, the shooter lane was its worst aspect as far as I was concerned, here is a pic before&after, I cut mylar to wrap in the ball groove, not the prettiest but good to go.

LOL! Thats awesome Jakenjoi, glad your are having a love affair with this great pin!

#971 5 years ago

I got spidey up and running a short while ago, Trilogy was just over testing it out and the newcastle barrel. I got a few pics here....

#973 5 years ago

As for Tron Everyone knows you love it and I enjoy it But It sure seems to Hate us .

When trilogy and I play TRON we have the worst combined score in the annals of TRON.

But Spidey is so pretty now

DSC09547.JPG

#984 5 years ago

Damn this thread wont die, who the hell is posting pics of a Spidey in here, Banvotes!!!

#987 5 years ago

We'll need to make an example of that guy if we ever catch him!

Here is to wishing all you guys who have enjoyed this thread were in my Pincave right now knocking back a few Newcastles with me!

#1073 5 years ago

I ended up not using the Zuse one as the factory targets at least had some "design" on them...

#1076 5 years ago

They just have some factory blue border on them....Curly at LittleShop has developed(or a supplier developed) plastic faced targets that are supposed to handle ball impact....LOL! that sounds funny!

#1079 5 years ago
Quoted from retired_user_101:

hmmm... any adhesive clear cover worth putting on these zuse decals?

You could try wrapping with mylar, 1 strip scross the face with edges to wrap around the sides and not the top, I think that is your only shot.

#1081 5 years ago
Quoted from Keebler:

I highly recommend getting this set, for the recognize decals (orange/black)...
http://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=2669
I used them on mine and they look great, and match the Zuse target decals.

Ive had my recognizer decals from pinball decals.com for 800+plays and they look solid still, but those zuse decals in that set you linked is what was on mine NIB, granted I had the last run of Pro's so maybe they had added them at that point?

#1085 5 years ago
Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

I just installed my Eli's ramp kit mod and it looks kind of dim to me. I do have a ton of LED's which might drown out the ramp brightness, but I don't think so. Here's a video of mine after install. Do you think it looks dim?? Flip it to full screen 1080p. Oh and it is my 9 year old son playing not me so don't expect spectacular gameplay.
